Why this relationship lasted: a 2am epiphany

Last night was one of those nights when instead of sleeping, I end up lying there pondering all manner of things: life and death, the nature of time, every major life event to ever befall me. It’s no surprise that I’m in a contemplative mood. I got engaged to my boyfriend of five years less than a week ago, so naturally there is a lot to think about. One of the things I’ve been pondering is why this relationship? Why has this one worked out when the others didn’t. I’m beyond elated that it did, but I wanted to know why, which leads me to my 2am revelation.
